Power produced at UK’s Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm

Following the installation of the first turbines, electricity has been generated for the first time at DONG Energy’s Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm, located off the North Norfolk coast.

The 75km2 Race Bank, located approximately 16.8 miles off Blakeney Point on the North Norfolk coast and 17.4 miles off the Lincolnshire coast at Chapel St Leonards will consist of 91 Siemens 6 megawatt (MW) turbines. Once all 91 turbines are installed, the plant will be capable of generating 573 MW of electricity, enough capacity to meet the annual electricity demands of “over half a million UK homes”, says DONG energy. 

Last year, DONG Energy also announced plans to create the UK's largest offshore wind operations and maintenance hub, which will serve Race Bank once it becomes operational.
